I always wondered what would have happened to Jamestown settlement without Pocahontas' help and if she ever regretted helping those new strange visitors. My first step into Jamestown is almost surreal. The soft gentle raindrops drown out surrounding noises. Eerie dark-sky makes this place seem ominous. This is the very ground where the modern America began. It has witnessed the turbulent American Civil ...
